I'm not on medication right now although I have been in the past. I'm very anti-medication for me although I am not against it in general. I have had bad experiences before and I have a past history of addiction that makes me leary. My T occaisionally brings it up and he has a pdoc that he would refer me to if we decided I needed it despite my reservations. I asked if he would call her first and go over my case with her and he said he would, but he also said she would ask me a bunch of questions which is of course what she should do. I am very doctor-phobic which is part of the reason I resist this, but another reason is what you have described in your post. I don't want to run the risk of another mental health profession messing around in my head. It's hard enough to work with one perspective. I suspect that either the pdoc my T would recommend would not so or she did it would not be in a way that undermines my current therapy, but of course you never know for sure. Perhaps you can see this pdoc for now and when your T comes back talk to him about what happened. He might have someone else to suggest who is more compatable with your T's style.
